Albert Einstein relativity theory and now lets find a piece from Mahaparinirvana Sutra:
"Also, next, O good man! For example, we deposit a bright gem in muddy water. But
by virtue of the gem, the water of itself becomes clear. But even this, if placed in mud, cannot
make the mud clear. The same with this all-wonderful Great Nirvana Sutra. If placed in the
defiled water of people guilty of the five deadly sins and those who have committed the four
grave offences too, it can indeed still call forth Bodhichitta. But in the mud of the icchantika,
even after 100 thousand million years, the water cannot become clear and it cannot call forth
Bodhichitta. Why not? Because this icchantika has totally annihilated the root of good and
is not worth that much. The man could listen to this Great Nirvana Sutra for 100 thousand
million years, and yet there could be no giving rise to the Bodhichitta [inside him]. Why not?
Because he has no good mind.
Gravitational time dilation
is a form of
, an actual difference of elapsed time between two events as measured by observers situated at varying distances from a gravitating
. The weaker the
(the farther the clock is from the source of gravitation), the faster time passes.
originally predicted this effect in his
theory of relativity
and it has since been confirmed by
tests of general relativity
According to some Mahayana Buddhist scriptures, the
is the most base and spiritually deluded of all types of being. The term implies being given over to total hedonism and greed.
Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.
